During registration, we will ask you to complete and sign a One Day Volunteer Application and Waiver.
The following is included:
By applying for and performing this volunteer work, I agree as follows and have initialed each item to indicate that agreement:
___ I am aware that this is a contract between me and SFWC and that it waives legal rights that I may have now or in the future and releases The SFWC and others from claims for damages.
___ I AM VOLUNTARILY PARTICIPATING IN THIS ACTIVITY WITH FULL KNOWLEDGE OF THE TASKS INVOLVED. I AGREE TO ACCEPT ANY AND ALL RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH MY PARTICIPATION, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO INJURY AND ILLNESS.
___ I fully assume all the risks involved with my volunteer activities, and acknowledge that they are acceptable to me. I agree to use my best judgment in undertaking these activities. I also agree to follow the rules and safety instructions as given by SFWC employees and volunteers authorized to act in a supervisory capacity.
___ I agree that I will not sue, prosecute, or in any way make a claim against The SFWC for injury to me or damage to my property resulting from the negligence or other acts, howsoever caused, by any employee, agent, volunteer or contractor of The SFWC or other people as a result of my volunteer duties.
___ I fully and forever release and discharge The SFWC from any and all actions, causes of action, claims, liabilities, or demands I have or may have in the future, whether known or unknown, for injury, illness, death or damage arising out of or related in any way to my volunteer duties.
___ I agree that The SFWC may use my name, and pictures, photographs, or video and/or sound recordings of me on television, on radio, on the Internet, in emails, and in stories, news articles, advertisements, or other written or digital materials. I agree that such uses may include education, advocacy, and fundraising. I consent to and authorize, in advance, such use and agree that The SFWC does not have to notify me of such use or provide me with other consideration for such use. I waive any rights of privacy and/or publicity I may have in connection with these uses.
___ I agree that the rights I am giving up and agreements I am making apply equally to me and to my heirs, successors, assigns, guardians and legal representatives. I agree that none of those individuals may make any claim or take any action that I could not make or take myself.
___ I agree that this Waiver and Release of Liability protects and is for the benefit of The South Florida Wildlife Center, and their respective employees, officers, directors, consultants, interns, volunteers, licensees, and all others acting on their behalf. I also agree that I may not make any claim or take any action against any of those affiliates or individuals that I could not make or take against The SFWC itself.
___ I intend to fully and voluntarily waive any rights I have as described in this Waiver and Release of Liability. To the extent that legal consideration is required for this Waiver and Release of Liability to be effective, I agree that I have received good, valuable and sufficient consideration by being permitted by The SFWC to provide volunteer service and to receive training and instruction.
I HAVE CAREFULLY READ THIS WAIVER AND RELEASE AND FULLY UNDERSTAND ITS CONTENTS AND ACCEPT AND SIGN IT OF MY OWN FREE WILL. If I am under 18 years of age at the time of registration, my parent or legal guardian has completely reviewed this Waiver and Release of Liability, understands, and consents to its terms, and authorizes my participation.
